Unique Solution for PRC-027-1

PowerBase and SARA icons

SynchroGrid’s SARA, a premier setting automation relay assistant, in collaboration with Doble’s PowerBase™, offers state-of-the-art automated solutions that successfully address time-consuming, cost-prohibitive challenges presented by NERC PRC-027-1 compliance requirements.

Addressing Requirement 1

Requirement 1 (R1) states that power and utility companies need to have a well-defined and well-documented relay setting development process.

  • SARA and PowerBase™ empower utilities to establish a streamlined process for relay setting development by automating the conventional workflow and simplifying the review process. This new, automated workflow involves SARA retrieving information from PowerBase, communicating with the short-circuit model (such as ASPEN OneLiner or PSS CAPE) to auto-calculate faults, and generating a relay setting file, along with user-friendly reports, for NERC compliant documentation.

Addressing Requirement 2

The purpose of Requirement 2 (R2) is to avoid misoperations caused by dynamic changes in the power system by performing wide area coordination (WAC) studies at regular intervals.

  • SARA and Doble’s PowerBase™ provide an efficient, automated solution for conducting WAC studies by facilitating the rigorous task of validating the model, analyzing the data, and tracking violations. And for enhanced recordkeeping, PowerBase™ tracks, stores, and retrieves the latest settings, which minimizes unnecessary time spent on retrieving data.
